Nearly 500 Criminal Illegal Aliens Arrested in National ‘Sanctuary City’ Sting

Nearly 500 criminal illegal aliens were arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in a four-day operation in sanctuary city jurisdictions, which shield illegal aliens from deportation.

Known as Operation Safe City, ICE agents detained a total of 498 illegal aliens living in sanctuary cities who violated U.S. immigration laws; have criminal convictions or pending criminal charges; are known gang members, immigration fugitives; and those who re-entered the U.S. after already being deported, according to ICE officials.

Illegal aliens who are currently shielded from deportation by the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program were not targeted in the operation, though those individuals will become eligible for deportation as their temporary protected status expires over the next two years.

Of the illegal aliens arrested:

  • 317 had criminal convictions
  • 68 are immigration fugitives
  • 104 are previously deported criminal aliens
  • 18 are gang members or affiliates

The sanctuary cities targeted in the operation included:

  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (107)
  • Los Angeles, California (101)
  • Denver, Colorado (63)
  • Massachusetts statewide (50)
  • New York City, New York (45)
  • Portland, Oregon (33)
  • Cook County, Illinois (30)
  • Baltimore, Maryland (28)
  • Santa Clara County, California (27)
  • Washington, D.C. (14)

Acting ICE Director Tom Homan said in a statement that sanctuary cities’ protection of criminal illegal aliens is driving the federal agency to conduct focused operations in those major areas.

“Sanctuary jurisdictions that do not honor detainers or allow us access to jails and prisons are shielding criminal aliens from immigration enforcement and creating a magnet for illegal immigration,” Homan said. “As a result, ICE is forced to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests in these communities.”

“ICE’s goal is to build cooperative, respectful relationships with our law enforcement partners to help prevent dangerous criminal aliens from being released back onto the streets. Non-cooperation policies severely undermine that effort at the expense of public safety,” Homan said.

ICE provided a chart of all the criminal convictions by the illegal aliens arrested.

    U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report August 2017

    October 9, 2017

    By David Olen Cross

    The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

    The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is explicitly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

    Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from August 26, 2017.).

    Inmate Citizenship:

    – México 25,255 inmates, 13.5 percent;
    – Colombia 1,695 inmates, 0.9 percent;
    – Dominican Republic 1,522 inmates, 0.8 percent;
    – Cuba 1,234 inmates, 0.7 percent;
    – Other / unknown countries 9,458 inmates, 5.1 percent;
    – United States 147,271 inmates, 79.0 percent;

    Total Inmates: 186,435 inmates.

    To clarify the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

    Combining August 26th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 39,164 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 21.0 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten inmates were criminal aliens.

    With 25,255 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 64.5 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

    The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 13,598 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 7.8 percent of the federal prison population.

    An urgent wakeup call to all American citizens, eventually the majority of these criminal aliens from México, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Cuba and other countries will be released from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons after completing their prison terms.

    The country of Mexico, America’s neighbor to the south, is both historically and literally a land bridge of many frequently unsecured trails, roads, highways and railways used by persons trying and far too often successfully illegally entering our country.

    United States citizens should, if they haven’t already, contact their members of the U.S. Congress (two Senators and one Representative) and tell them to support President Donald J. Trump’s commitment to build a wall (fences and technology) along the U.S. border with Mexico to stop the threat of tens of thousands of criminal aliens, once they are released from the federal prison system and deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to their countries of origin, ability to illegally return to this nation and harm its citizens and residents.
